Azone Blue Bird Tsukiha arrival

Finally posting this box opening/arrival for Azone Blue Bird Tsukiha that I got home last week :) She's another doll in the Otogi no Kuni series and like the other dolls in the series, she was also inspired by a fairy tale.

I really loved this version of Tsukiha when I saw the first pictures of her and decided that I would pre-order her... I even set an alarm to wake me up at 5am on the day her pre-orders started to make sure that I managed to place my order before she's sold out everywhere, but suddenly I started doubting, got this weird feeling that "well, maybe I don't need her" and fell back to sleep without ordering her :'D A few hours later when we woke up, Sarg asked me did I get Tsukiha and got angry at me for not ordering, she thought that I was such an dumbass lol... Later that day my mood was totally different again and I realized that I had made a big mistake, unfortunately all the pre-orders for her were closed already ;____; I decided to stalk AmiAmi to see if she'd become available again sometime later, and that actually happened only a couple of days later! So, in the end I managed to order Tsukiha :D

Here's some background music that came to my mind:
I really love this song, you wouldn't guess that it's an opening song for Naruto Shippuden XD

The box is really pretty and detailed, love all the blue birds!

Are those blueberries?! :'D This immediately made me think of the Finnish forests hahah

This page features a photo of the upcoming Sera of  Blue Gables ♥



The accessories~ I have no idea how I could've completely forgotten to take any picture of the cape D: Tsukiha came with one pair of extra hands, just like Chisa (another XS girl).

She's such a cutie pie~ ♥ The outfits in the Otogi no Kuni series have been so beautiful and well-made, I've had no complaints with the ones I've received. My favorites from this set are the bag and shoes :)

I struggled a little bit with figuring out the perfect name for this girl, but in the end I chose Mei. One meaning 

The bow on the back! It can be separated from the skirt and added to other outfits, or this skirt could be worn without the bow :)

Little Miu wanted to give a hug to Mei XD Mei actually loves little kids a lot (even though she's only 12 herself...) and wants to become a kindergarten teacher when she grows up!


Mei thanks you for reading! ♥ Sarg has ordered her twin brother, Blue Bird Sorane, which is hopefully going to be shipped later this month~ Mei can't wait to get her brother home as well ^^ He's also going to be the first boy in our Azone crew, which is quite exciting!

  1. Congrats, such luck that she appeared for preorder later! I sometimes get that feeling too when I have waited for a long time for someting to be released and the release date gets closer... that maybe I don't need it that much after all.

    Loving that pic of Mei and Miu hugging~ <3

    1. Thank you ^^ I've seen quite many of the newer Pureneemos first get sold out really fast, but then Amiami either gets more of them or people cancel their orders... I wouldn't count on that though, so this was quite nerve-cracking since I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get her XD But yeah, that kind of mood swings about buying things, especially limited stuff, can be annoying and mess up things a lot >.<

      I was actually just playing around with them, but it looked so cute that I had to snag a few photos XD

  3. Lucky you ended up being able to get her anyway :D

    1. Yes, lucky me! Hunting these dolls down from the second-hand market isn't so easy most of the time, so I'm happy that I managed to secure a pre-order in the end!

      Thank you ^^

  4. Congrats! I am glad you were able to get her in the end. I'm going to have to enjoy these next few releases through you if you end up getting them!

    I've noticed that Hobbysearch has been doing something similar with their Azone dolls, they are getting restocked a lot more often and pre-orders are opened a few times instead of the once. I'm glad they are doing this now as when I wanted Rabbit Mia, I stalked HS all morning waiting for the pre-order to open. Went to get a glass of water and came back five minutes later and in that time she had opened for pre-order and sold out. I was really angry at myself! And she was never restocked after that and the pre-order opened just that once and that was it. So I'm glad they are taking a different approach now.

    Mei is really beautiful. The outfit is gorgeous, there is a lot of stuff! At least she came with one option hand part! I was tempted by her too but I already had a Tsukiha that I loved quite a bit so that was lucky!

    Thanks for posting the box opening.

    1. Thank you, I'm definitely happy about it as well! I hope to get a few of the upcoming releases (at least the pastel-colored Minami is a must!), luckily they won't all be released during the same month ^^;

      Yeah it was crazy how quickly some of the pre-orders were closed! I'm not sure if the new approach is them having more stock or if some people have just cancelled their pre-orders? At least on Amiami I've seen the dolls go up quite randomly and sometimes there're only like one or two D: But I really hope that Azone and the retailers have realized how popular the dolls are and make more of them than before!

      I really love Mei ♥ I haven't seen many of the previous Tsukiha for sale, so this new release was a great thing for me! I love the XS girls a lot, I wish there were even more of different faces/characters :)

  5. Congratulations on bringing her home!

    How brilliant that you managed to sneak in an order after the original order period ended - I love when things come together like that. :)

      I wonder if it was such good luck or meant to be that I managed to get her :D

  6. Congrats!!! She is super pretty! I'm glad that you could get her in the end.

    I always regret not getting dolls XD! I'll survive ofc, but there are times that you really REALLY think you should have gotten that limited you wanted. But you know there's a special mood you have to be for purchasing haha

    1. Thanks so much~ I'm really happy about it too!

      I've learned that it's better to regret buying something than not buying, at least for me XD Missing on limited stuff and realizing a bit later that you do want it after all can end up causing a lot of extra trouble and also cost more money... There have rarely been dolls that I regretted getting (if I end up selling them, it's usually for bonding problems or other reasons), so I try to trust my instincts :3 It's really annoying though if you don't feel like purchasing anything, but you know you have to buy something NOW if it's something limited lol...

    1. Thanks! My XS girls would be fighting over extra hands if Tsukiha and Chisa didn't come with these XD

      I love listening to Japanese music, even though I don't understand the language well enough to know what the lyrics mean :D

    1. Thank you :) I'm really happy that I got the chance to pre-order her, I would've regretted later even more if I had decided to completely give up on her!

    1. Thanks so much dear ^^
      I do enjoy taking the box opening pictures and I usually don't have to edit them much, so it's not that much work~ It's fun to have an arrival of each doll to archive ♥

  16. Awww, your new girl is totally adorable! Congrats on getting her. I'm in love with the combination of her silver hair with the blue dress. :D

    I've wanted a Pureneemo for a while and will try my best to resist the cuteness till next year (I need to finish my BJDs xD). I've mostly been looking for them on Mandarake, but knowing nothing about Azone it seems like they often sell older releases? All the newer releases you've been posting about seems so much more cute than the ones I find on Mandarake. Well, I might decide to look into pre-ordering one next year in stead of buying one secondhand. I'm just so in love with all those cute outfits on the newer ones. xD

    1. Thank you! ♥ I love the combination too, I'm sure Azone plans these things really carefully so that everything matches nicely :D

      Oh great to hear that you might be caving in for Pureneemos too! ♥ Mandarake usually has the older releases and their prices can sometimes be a bit higher than you could get from Yahoo Japan (you need to use a shopping service), but there can be pretty nice deals as well! I do recommend pre-ordering if you fall in love with a particular doll :)
